Hey man! Love grave decks and I'm glad people are still excited about them too! Your list looks pretty interesting, and if you wou like here's my advice: 1. I do not know what budget limitations you are under, so I'll sort my advice by price :) 2. I also do not know the mindset of your playgroup, so if anything I suggest seems too rude, unfun, or not accepted in your group, you make the judgement call and could totally just not run it. It's suggestions, not an order :) 3. Under 5$ includes: Blood Pet, Slaughter Pact, Pox, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Final Parting, Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot, Stitch Together, and Manglehorn. 4. 5-10$ Includes: Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Abrupt Decay, Entomb, Lightning Greaves, and Birthing Pod. 5. >10$ Includes: Grave Pact, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and Mana Vault 6. The most exspensive commander staple since force of will and the og duals, it's Mana Crypt!! 7. Potential cards you could take out for these in my opinion: Triumph of the Hordes, Blighted Woodland, Catacomb Sifter, Thoughtpicker Witch, Elixir of Immortality, Caustic Tar, Moldervine Reclamation, Swiftfoot Boots, the guildgate, and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip 8. Again, these are just my suggestions and you may do with them what you will, just thought I'd share because I love this archetype and want to see others enjoy it to their fullest. :)

Neat. It needs some cheaper or turn 1-2 creatures though. I'd try to swap in some of these:
- Young Wolf
- Cabal Therapist (Sacrifice outlet)
- Changeling Outcast (Unblockable "wolf")
- Beastcaller Savant (Mana ramp)
- Crashing Drawbridge (Haste)
Plus maybe some of these kind of effects to bump up the danger:

That seems like a good trade out. I agree Thoughtpicker Witch is a hard one to use if your low on mana and creatures to kill off. she has come in handy a few times but i can see Bone Shredder 's use as well. I will order the card and test it out. thanks for the ideas.

A little on the janky side, and you would get blown out by a sweeper, but Kormus Bell lets you drastically increase the number of saccables you have, plus gets pretty fun with Urborg out. Thoughtpicker Witch isn't that good in my experience unless you can go infinite or you have a lot of mana to dump into it. Maybe cut her for Bone Shredder from the sideboard

Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip is something I experimented with, but in the end all I could ever really do was activate her +, which is pretty weak in this deck. But my meta is pretty hard on planeswalkers. Maybe yours is more lenient, idk.
Lord of Extinction is sorta just weak here. I mean it combos great with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , but how often are you going to christmas-dreamland into both of those two? And Nighthowler is kinda just a worse Lord of Extinction .
I have played Sheoldred, Whispering One before and, like all of the praetors, all she does is get you targeted to death- especially if you can recur her.
Deadbridge Chant 's randomness makes it pretty bad. You're aiming to have like 10 or 15 cards in your grave by the time you play this, it makes that number 25. 1 in 25 is not very good. Like the card is a decent value engine, but it's not likely to get you what you're looking for.
Suggestions for Adds:
Acidic Slime : flexible removal
Farhaven Elf : better ramp
Thragtusk : a BIG pillow to lie back against- five life and two blockers!
Treasure Keeper : good value
Veteran Explorer : never hurts to have the table on your side
Vindictive Lich : hits each opponent where it hurts
Wall of Blossoms : big-butt creature and a draw
Wurmcoil Engine : just insane
Hell's Caretaker : good recursion
Attrition : repeatable removal
Perilous Forays : repeatable ramp
Quagmire Druid : repeatable enchantment removal
Sadistic Hypnotist : repeatable hand hate
Thoughtpicker Witch : f.ck somebody's draws
Viscera Seer : free, instant-speed sac outlet, provides some card advantage
Vraska, Golgari Queen : + is great, - is great, and ult is insane
Deathreap Ritual : lots of draw
Shadows of the Past : so. many. scries.
Zulaport Cutthroat : pings opponents to death, gains life

Thanks ! Teysa Karlov is definitely a sweet card.
Thoughtpicker Witch is a cool card, can't believe I've never seen it before.
I was considering Hidden Stockpile when I was making this deck originally, but it didn't make the cut. It might find a home in here though.
